I worked at Ethos Consulting Group full-time for more than a yearPros
Ethos is a school of hard knocks, literally. As in you walk around neighborhoods, knocking doors, selling Centurylink and DTV. Great opportunity for those interested in outsourced door to door sales, and potentially owning a sales office. Great training for those looking to get start their career by developing sales and leadership skills.
The best thing I can say about this job is that it will change you for the better. I learned sales, how to conduct an interview and recruit, how to communicate more effectively, and how to manage and train people. It's lame and super cliché, but this job made me a better person across the board. Ethos opened many doors for me professionally.Cons
100% commission (if you close less than 4 contracts after cancellations there is no safety net), door to door sales, no reimbursement for gas, and questionable hiring practices (inflated projected incomes that aren't based on office averages or the average income of first year owners). This is really a career path for people with an entrepreneurial mindset and want to own their own business; which means the ones who make it to management dedicate their lives to work. Owning a business means working 24/7/365. It's also very high risk, as many owners go out of business. You need to be a goal fixated grinder to make it, and only a few will.
The worst part of this job is the pay. The commission percentages to revenue generated are in the single digits with no base pay to compensate. The hours are long and weird: Mon-Sat 11-9 (Saturdays are usually shorter). I left becAdvice to ManagementAdvice
Make sure Leaders are being forthright in the interview process about what face to face direct marketing actually means in terms of an average day, and base the projected earnings on the actual metrics.Doesn't RecommendPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
